Grandmother It has been years since you've been gone; Yet I hear your voice say "Carry On". I repeat to myself your name out loud; I hear you say " Child, you make me proud". I sing a song in your praise; You echo back "You've kept my ways". I say a prayer of peace for you; A single feather confirms you knew. Grandmother, I shalll visit you again; "A'Ho my child" rang in the wind. I came in tears, but leave in peace; "Be well, dear one" whispered in the breeze Darlene Doll Smith
